I am a new small business owner and I chose DreamHost based on the reviews I read across many blogs and review sites. I am very happy to have made this decision. I am using their shared hosting plan as that is all I need for my business right now, and I am using FTP to upload my custom webdesigns to my server. It is simple, easy to figure out, and perfect for what my business needs right now. There is also plenty of room for my website to grow along with my business, which is nice. My limited interaction with the customer service at DreamHost has also been very positive. They are friendly, and very helpful.
